Seniors on Stage: The Impact of Applied Theatre Techniques on the Elderly

Front Cover
Praeger, 1985 - Psychology - 201 pages


This is the first in-depth study documenting the way in which drama therapy helps the elderly. Directed towards those interested in, or currently running and evaluating creative drama programs for the elderly, the authors demonstrate how, through participatory theatre, hospitalized patients are able to discover creative expression, form positive self-concepts, and speed their recovery. The book describes how to set up a program, and provides examples of activities and finished products.
